Ex. Dr. Art Soregaroli
Fine, very gemmy pair of Aquamarines from Shigar Valley showing two kinds of terminations. The larger, small cabinet piece is light blue and gemmy through and through. It is so glassy that it looks like a prism. The smaller miniature is a richer green-blue, every bit as lustrous and gemmy, and more hexagonal in shape. The total mass for this pair is 22 grams.
